Kitty Cat Hand Warmers to Make
A few years back I designed some Hot Dog- Hand-Warmers and have been asked on a few occasions if I would design cats.

So here are my Kitty Cat Hand-Warmers, sure to make you purr.

They are wonderful to have in your pockets on a cold day and are small enough that they don't take up a lot of room.

These are great fabric stash busters. You could even sew them up in colors that match your own feline.

Think about having a basket of both the dog and cat hand warmers by your front door. 

These make great stocking stuffers and handmade gifts for friends and family.

Bat became part of Halloween because people thought that they were vampires in disguise.

This image was taken from a antique book of animals. 

I don't want my Halloween to be too scary so the bat place cards are spooky enough without going over the top.

Things that go bump in the night signI like putting little Halloween decorations all over the house. I thought I would put this sign in the guest bedroom (not really).

This spooky little Halloween sign would look great on an entryway table or a desk.

I have heard all different versions of this Scottish prayer and this is the one that my sisters use to say around Halloween time.

"May the Lord protect you from ghosties and ghoulies and long legged beasties and things that go bump in the night", always managed to send a few gentle shivers down my back.

How to roast pumpkin seedsEver wonder how to roast pumpkin seeds? I know that every time you scoop out the inners from your Jack-o-lanterns the thought probably crosses you mind.

It is easy to roast these tasty little snacks but I do have to admit I have never found a graceful way to eat them.

Sitting on the back porch eating the roasted pumpkin seeds with the kids on a warm autumn day it probably the best way to go about it.

Pumpkin seeds are full great vitamins. They have most of the B vitamins and vitamins A and C.  These are a tasty little snack that are easy to make.
